We spent a week as two families of four at Christine’s place near Bisenti and we had a wonderful time. The villa is well equipped, particularly upstairs in the main living area. It was clean and tidy, and had all we needed. There is a large balcony wrapped around two sides of the villa which was great for lounging about and gazing at the incredible mountain views, with a big broad table perfect for meals in the evening sun. The downstairs living area is slightly simpler but perfectly nice. Outside, the pool was perfect for us and the kids, and we had a good few days doing little more than relaxing in and out of the water. At the front is table tennis and table football, and a glorious little bbq area hidden away which has the most spectacular view I’ve ever had whilst grilling!
It was tricky to find as first timers, and sat nav will be of no help to you, but the Teramo and Abruzzo area was well worth the drive. We had a lovely couple of days at Pineto beach, and a delightful visit to San Lorenzo vineyard (after which we couldn’t resist taking some bottles home and putting our baggage allowance at risk for the return flight!)
A week was too short, and we’re already itching to go back!
We would go back here any time! The house is very clean and well-equipped with a good kitchen, excellent beds and nice dining table and lounge. Most of all it is very private and utterly peaceful. It feels like stepping into another world even though it is only a couple of hundred metres from the road. The views are completely stunning! We found that it worked much better than actually being at the beach because the air is fresher away from the coast and it's much easier to sleep well. In fact very well! We usually had morning coffee on the balcony and evening drink in the porch looking straight out at the mountains. We went to the beach at Pineto about 10km away, and shopping and restaurants were easy in Atri. There's a good cathedral there and even a theatre right on the square which is good for coffee.
